A recent national report on cancer finds that rates of new
cancer cases and deaths continue to fall slowly each year.   And that promising news has garnered lots of
attention within the past week.  We talk
with Dr. Bruce Leavitt and Dr. Neil Hyman, two Fletcher Allen surgeons who work
with cancer, about how they interpret the report’s numbers, and about the work
they’re doing in Vermont to
battle cancer. Listen

Also, we talk with Joe Roman, a fellow at the Gund Institute
for Ecological Economics at UVM.  He’s
co-written a new scientific paper that makes the case that habitat destruction
and biodiversity loss increase infectious disease rates in humans. Listen
